WHAT OUR GRADUATES SAY ABOUT US
“MADE STUDYING AND TAKING THE TEST MORE SYSTEMATIC”
Info-packed 3-hour sessions, supplemented with real SAT examples. The classification of question types, errors and rules made studying and taking the test more systematic, and thus easier. The instructor relates concepts to examples well. Very well-referenced.

“NOT IMPOSSIBLE TO ACHIEVE A HIGH SCORE”
Attending the IvyPrep SAT Masterclass helped me understand a lot more on how the SAT is structured. It made me more confident that it is not impossible to achieve a high score.
- Eunice, Victory Life Christian School, October 2013
To be honest I was quite skeptical about the course at the beginning. But about halfway, I found that it really helped me significantly to improve my scores and to study smarter. Would I recommend this course? Yes! Prior to the class, my scores were stuck at about 18xx-19xx, but now I’m getting 21xx. I would say that I learnt the most for the writing component as it has helped me eliminate 2-3 answer choices at the first glance, thus saving me a lot of precious time. Ping Khuan is a great instructor and he is very willing to stay back after class to clarify any concerns.
- Bertrand, Victory Life Christian School, May 2013
“GUIDED ME INTO THE SAT MINDSET”
The course guided me into the “SAT mindset” and the techniques taught were very specific to each SAT question types. After the course, I know exactly how to answer the different questions in each section. The highlight of the course to me was the lessons on the Writing section of the test, because it completely changed the way I write argumentative essays. The format taught was detailed and useful in dealing with the pressure of time constraint in Section One. The instructor is very willing to help us in the areas that we are struggling in and adapts the lessons according to our responses.

"THE PHILOSOPHY BEHIND THE SAT"
A very beneficial SAT preparation class that does not only teach you how to tackle the SAT head-on, but more importantly, the philosophy behind the SAT – the tricks and trade of it. It’s definitely a very useful prep course that would help improve your SAT scores significantly. The instructor is very engaging and helpful, and sustained my interest throughout the course.

“THE COURSE IS WELL-DESIGNED”
It was effective as advice was given by someone who actually took the SAT, so I feel he had a better idea what to teach. A lot was taught in a short amount of time and the course is well-designed. The instructor was very helpful, always answered questions and interacted along the classes to keep us motivated.
